This story is a weird collision my early 90's interests. In college I wrote a crappy one act play called "Fruit Bat Love" which didn't really have anything to do with fruit bats but one of the characters did own one. A few years after college the ebola virus was making big, scary news and I was fascinated. I never read Richard Preston's book, The Hot Zone, but I did read his magazine article on which it was based. I used a picture of the virus as a background image on my first web site, a site which also hosted a copy of "Fruit Bat Love." That site is gone but a few other sites linked to the play (people who actually care about fruit bats apparently) and at least one of those pages still exists.
I still have a copy of that site, I should put it back up on Cognize. It's healthy to embarrass one's self periodically.
Update: I did it, my first web site is back up; bad design, bad writing, liberally garnished with broken links. Enjoy.
